Claire Foy, pulling double duty this fall with "First Man" and her starring role in "The Girl in the Spider's Web", plays Armstrong wife, Janet Shearon.

"On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures' First Man, the riveting story of NASA's mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969".

The trailer debuted on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' showing Gosling as Armstrong and the film follows his training to man the Apollo 11 spaceflight.

First Man opens on October 12. We see Armstrong getting off the space capsule to earn the title of 'First Man on the Moon'.

Apart from the aforementioned cast, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Pablo Schreiber, Ciaran Hinds, Lukas Haas, Jason Clarke, and Christopher Abbott are on the roster.

Based on James R. Hansen's 2005 book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, the film chronicles the life of the American astronaut and his journey towards becoming the first man to land on the moon.

In the amusing interview, Ryan appeared to be annoyed by the questions that Jimmy was asking.

"Do you think you're coming back?" one boy asks.

What's striking here is how much they're playing up the danger and the risk, both elements we tend to forget about because the mission was a success. "You're not just going to work".
